Bootloader Customization Now Open to More S-Off HTC Devices

Not too long ago, we brought you news that allowed HTC EVO 4G LTE users to customize their bootloaders. The process was pretty cool, allowing users to make their bootloader look however they want---including making it look unhacked. After the initial project was released, users clamored for this to be made available to more devices. The requests were heard and responded to. Now, the plugin has been made available to make the bootloader customizer for a number of HTC devices....

Super Utility for the HTC Sensation 4G and XE

Tool kits and utility applications do most of the work bridging the gap between the not-so-tech savvy and Android development. While varying in functionality and polish, the tools get the job done with minimal effort, and allow the average user to easily experience all their Android phone has to offer. With an array of tool kits out there that perform almost countless tasks, the right utilities can result in all sorts of functionality you didn't know you could even get. HTC...

Well HTC, You Put Up a Good Fight–Juopunutbear S-OFF for Most of HTC’s 2011 Lineup

HTC's locking of the bootloaders during last year was nothing short of a spectacular feat. It was really a battle of the titans, where the original line-up of Sensation-like devices came with a locked bootloader, which was later unlocked and S-OFFed, only to be updated to yet another revision of the HBOOT. But the second time around, it was locked to an almost unlockable state. Having heard many complaints from the user base (and us), HTC decided to offer the...

HTC Delivers ICS Kernel Source Code for the Sensation, Sensation XE and Vivid

HTC has always had a good relationship with its users, by industry standards.  They've made several game-changing decisions in the past year, including unlocking device bootloaders and confirming Ice Cream Sandwich support for a wide range of handsets, including some that were lower range than most competitors bothered to support. Now, continuing in an effort to improve that relationship,  HTC is challenging the idea that the company is slow to deliver source code for its devs and fans! HTC 's...

HTC Details its Ice Cream Sandwich Update Plan

The billion dollar question right now in the Android world is whether or not your device will receive Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. As they so humorously put it: Few innovations have improved upon ice cream as much putting it between two cookies and making a sandwich. Which is why we all want Ice Cream Sandwich! Ok, that’s not the real reason, but we’re all excited about Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, coming to HTC. While there is constant speculation...

Add Beats To Any Sense Rom

You have likely been hearing about the new Beats Audio technology that was implemented on the Sensation XE last month.

A few select roms on various devices have had this ported to them by their respective chefs, like this one. But, what if the particular rom that has it is not exactly your cup of tea? Fear no more...
